When my favourite scented candle ran out, I made a trip to Matalan to replace it. They didn’t have the coconut and vanilla candle anymore (sob) but I found another candle I liked the smell of.
The Calm Fragranced Jar Candle has a sparkling citrus and sea salt scent. It has a wooden wick, which provides a crackling effect too.
Blue doesn’t really match the colour of my living room, but I mean who cares really. It’s a great size scented candle for the price.
I had a look at the rest of the homeware section and found several nice items; all good quality and all for a great price too.
This Ombre Effect Glass Hurricane Tealight Holder is possibly my favourite out of everything I bought.
I love the cut glass effect that gives it a glam feel, and when a tealight is lit inside, the cut glass detail throws out beautiful shapes. The perfect romantic vibe for a cosy night in.
I’ve been eyeing up these Heart Embossed Tumbler Glasses for quite some time and decided to finally buy one. I drink lots of water throughout the day, so I’m always on the lookout for glasses that are a decent size. I bought some Vileroy and Boch glasses while we were on holiday in France (that I still haven’t photographed to show you!) and I adore them but they are a little on the small side to use when I’m sat at home drinking water all day.
This tumbler is a really good size and it is really heavy so it feels like good quality. I’m also a sucker for anything with a heart on it, so I love that detail.
Dan has been wanting a clear latte glass for a while, so we picked one of those up too.
The drinks made from his Nescafe Dolce Gusto coffee machine fit perfectly and a caramel hot chocolate does look very tempting in his new glass mug! (If you have a Dolce Gusto machine, you’ve simply got to try the Caramel Chococino pods – they are utterly delicious).
I also bought a Salter handheld spiralizer, which has proved to be really easy to use and a great way to make vegetable noodles. I didn’t want something that would take up too much room in the cupboard, so a small handheld version was a good idea, and great value for money too.
I’m impressed with the quality and prices of home accessories at Matalan – a great place to find new additions to your home for a very reasonable price tag.
